"USS Hutchins (DD-476), a Fletcher-class destroyer, was a ship of the United States Navy named for Lieutenant Carlton B. Hutchins (1904–1938), a naval aviator who was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor."
An original and rare soft cover cruise book from 1945, showing the history, the ships log, the crew, (identified by division but not named individually) a memorial, medals awarded, and lots of black & white photos of action. There are some light spots to edges of the first couple of pages, that can be seen in the photos. The rest of the book is clean and bright with no writing, markings or odors. The staples are beginning to discolor with age but are not rusty nor do they stain the paper. the binding is still tight and the pages are flat. It`s difficult to say how many of these books are still around today, so this might be your only chance in a while.
(Note: Photos may show magnified dust, a flash reflection, or color washout.)
